Well, considering Audi had 3 years to figure out how to make the B6 S4
handle as good as the E46, I'd say they did okay, but still aren't
without their problems.  Take a glance over at Audiworld and you'll
see how they're having engine/gearbox failures, which doesn't really
inspire too much confidence in the brand.

Now where's that new M3?

But it already rattles everywhere, the paper thin leather is showing what three kids can do, and a pothole sends shudders through the car. But I knew this going in. If my S4 did that, it would be gone.
